#UaacAauc Conference 2021 Call for Papers (submission due: May 16) | #AaucUaac 2021 Congrès Appel à communications (date limite de soumission: 16 mai) https://uaac-aauc.com/2021/ Session 3. Asian Collections in Canadian Museums and Galleries from the Nineteenth Century to Today Sisi Li, University of Regina Karla McManus, University of Regina Starting in the 19th century, Canadian museums and art galleries began collecting Asian art and artifacts. Early collections came from the donations of collectors (mostly merchants and scholars), while later sources were more diverse. By considering the history and evolution of these collections, including their collectors and acquisition histories, it is possible to analyze how Canadian Asian collections follow the evolution of ideas in art history, influenced by imperialism, colonialism and Orientalism. We invite papers on topics related to the history of collecting Asian art in Canada including: how has the interpretation of Asian collections in Canadian museums changed in order to demonstrate awareness of diverse communities? How can we understand the unique position of Asian art in Canada and the significance of Canadian Asian collections in the global context? How to study the broader issues of matter, agency, and identity between Canada and Asia through the Canadian Asian collection? Keywords: Canadian museums and art galleries, Asian collections, from the nineteenth century to today If anyone is interested in this panel, please go to the UAAC official website https://uaac-aauc.com/2021/ Fill out the "Call for papers form" and send it to [email protected]
